More and more families and workers on our island are forced to move to Kitsap or Tacoma because affordable housing is becoming ever more scarce. People who have lived here many, many years are forced to leave their friends and community support networks. What are we going to do about this as a community?

The Community Council is beginning by gathering people’s thoughts and ideas, and forming a committee to work on this vitally important, and thorny, issue.  We are beginning by having a conversation at the March 15 meeting. Send your thoughts, ideas, concerns, questions, and possible solutions to All will be gathered for the new committee to review. Are you willing to help do research and work on this issue? Please let Diane know this, too.
